    so can anyone help me identify these guys? They came with a group of chickens I picked up from a guy who was moving. Both of them are calm and seem to get along well with the rest of the chickens in their group.

    This is the hen. I am thinking they are what I have heard called Easter Eggers- haven't seen any eggs yet but it has only been 2 days and the guy said he wasn't feeding them the right feed (low protein) I have them on good feed now so hoepfully, we will see some eggs before too long. (It is still in the mid 60's here)

    The coloring and the pea combs look like EE, but the yellow feet are throwing me. Most EE have the pea comb but slate or greenish legs. I do have a yellow legged EE but they are rare. Usually the greenish or slate legs. Mine with the yellow legs does lay a green blue egg. Time will tell, let us know when she lays!

    I have seen a lot of yellow-legged EE's, not sure they're as uncommon as we think [​IMG] And agreed, I want to know what color eggs she lays!

    easter egger. I got a yellow and white one. :S The tuffs and the rumps are a dead giveaway, along with the pea comb.

    Easter eggers. She may not lay until spring unless you're supplementing light.
